Snorkeling in Tonga

A popular activity in the Kingdom on Tonga is snorkelling; it’s easy to do for all age groups. No complicated gear on your back, just a snorkel, some flippers and away you go. Tonga is renowed for crystal clear waters, a huge variety of tropical fish species and coral. For first time snorkellers there are plenty of guides around to assist you. The water temperature is always very pleasant; you don’t even need a wet suit.

Fishing in Tonga

Tonga has a reputation as a hot game fishing destination – a paradise all-year round. Troll Vava’u’s crystal clear waters for Blue, Black or Striped Marlin, Sailfish, Mahi-mahi, Big Yellow Fin Tuna and Wahoo. Cast jigs or poppers for predators like Blue Fin and Giant Trevally. Virtually all species of tropical fish frequent Tongan waters, and with its vast areas of reef structure, drop offs, canyons and seamounts, as well as several offshore F.A.D’s, every angler can experience a smorgasbord of tropical fishing.

Diving in Tonga

The Tongan archipelago consists of 176 islands, roughly the same number of marine species divers encounter in their first hour exploring the Kingdom’s coral reefs, caves and crystal clear waters. With sea turtles, manta rays, tuna, marlin and wahoo combining with even bigger creatures like whale sharks; Tonga is a destination with underwater thrills on a truly grand scale.

Whale watching in Tonga

Holiday makers are not the only ones to return to Tonga’s shores on a regular basis. After a long journey north from the icy krill-laden depths of Antarctica, southern humpback whales take shelter in the tropical reef-protected waters of Tonga to give birth to their young. The arrival of the whales from July to October completes a remarkable cycle, as the new calves return to where they were conceived 11 months earlier.

Eating and Drinking in Timor Leste

Timor-Leste has a strong culture of hospitality and most socialising involves food. A traditional Timorese lunch or dinner meal includes rice, meat or fish, beans and corn, and seasonal vegetables, with clever use of local spices, fresh herbs, tropical fruits and sometimes coconut milk, accompanied by extremely hot ai-manas (chili paste). Timor-Leste is rightly famous for its rich, dark and delicious coffee, grown organically in the hills. As you explore Timor-Leste it is interesting to sample the different regional coffees.
